Consistently Inconsistent
26 July 2009 | by osughostcarSee all my reviews

Mark Feuerstein (Hank) carries the show MacGyvering medical miracles. While I really enjoy these scenes it might annoy me if I had a little more medical knowledge as the seemingly implausible might be impossible.

Some shows are carried by the supporting cast (think Seinfeld or Frasier) this is not one of those shows. His brother, Evan, and love-interest, Jill, can both be annoying at times while Divya is often flat. None of them are good actors and the bad acting extends to the list of sometimes reoccurring characters as well.

I love the good episodes and hate the bad ones. The funny thing is I may be able to start skipping the bad ones entirely because they alternate. I have liked episodes 1, 3, 5 and 7 and disliked 2, 4 and 6.
